Santa Ana, California Speed Traps
Southbound Euclid Ave., far side of McFadden Ave., first driveway on the right, entrance to Catholic Church.
Motor officer watching for speeders as well as motorists using the right turn (curb) lane to continue straight south on Euclid, bypassing traffic backups in the morning.
when you get off the 5fwy its 30mph then after 17th st. it turns into 35mph. And it use to be 35 the hole way down main st.
Eastbound Lilac just West of Harbor Blvd, there is an officer sitting just beyond the brick wall that enters the apartments on the North side, near the stop sign. He pulled me over twice and ticketed me once for going 35mph in a 25mph zone. This is a cut through street to go from Edinger to Harbor and is never busy anytime of day. The posted speed limit is totally ridiculous and should be at least 35 pmh. Both times I was pulled over, it was at months end – go figure!
I got two speeding tickets going South on the 5 Fwy and Euclid Ave in 3 years. I try to avoid the freeway or go below 80mph. Driver’s beware.
Near the High School on Grand Ave (between McFadden & Edinger) there is a motorcycle cop looking for speeders. He hides on the side street (on the right hand side) right after the crossing/light to the high school.
